The Rungs ~ BFF

The Rungs BFF Cover Art!

Who is THE RUNGS?  One of my favorite synthpop guitar rock duos in all the land!: They are Mandy & Diwas Gurung!

My first impression of “BFF” :  A playful and fun track with a sense of wide-eyed naïvety I wish I had a lot more of!

My take : Good friends are hard to find but being lucky enough to have a best friend usually changes how the world looks dramatically.  Having that special person to tackle tough situations and experience new things together with, can make the unattainable feel right within grasp.  And in most cases, completely enjoyable because of not knowing any other way.  Brooklyn duo THE RUNGS sprightly capture the vivid imagination and carefree innocence of a youthful yet meaningful sounding friendship with their new track “BFF”.  Where like-minded dreamers look out to the world thinking that anything is possible.

THE RUNGS have a way of making a simple, straightforward and familiar sound feel brand new again.  And with “BFF”, with its infectious blend of frolicking synth beats and rhythms, bouncy guitar strums and earnestly hopeful vocals,  THE RUNGS prove they can still leave me wanting more!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
